"IN OUR NEIGHBORHOODS AS IT IS IN HEAVEN"
Our Sunday morning worship gatherings are intentionally simple. In a highly produced and marketed world we want to be able to focus on authenticity and depth. From our kids to our adults we want our gatherings to be focused on connecting with each other and God. This simplicity allows us to focus our resources and energy toward being involved in and serving our neighborhoods.
This is a space created specifically for our neighbors and community! We want to be able to provide a regularly available space for our community to be able to gather together. This is a free space for our community to meet together, co-work, remote work, or just get away from the business of life. We are serving coffee and hot tea from our incredible partners at Equal Exchange who are making an incredible impact on the 40+ farmers they work with through an alternative trade model that pours back into their local community rather than lining a company’s pocket. What is even better is that it is all free to our neighbors! So, feel free to pop for a place to meet, get away, or a coffee to go!
We believe in the statement, “one of the signs of a healthy community is there to be a healthy farmers market in that community.” We want to love our neighborhoods and we want our neighborhoods to be healthy, connected, and supporting and pouring into the quality of life and sustainability of our community. The Market on Ridgeland is one of the ways that we, as a church, are working to make a difference in our neighborhoods.
In our mission to love our neighborhoods we knew there needed to be a way for neighbors to connect together in order to be able to know and care for each other and that is why we created the Be My Neighbor community platform. This is a custom social media platform, available for Apple, Android, or Web, for our neighborhoods with the sole intention of connecting neighbors together, provide a space for neighborhood planning to happen, and a way that care can be coordinated. Let’s re-neighbor our neighborhoods!
Navigating the dynamics of family, parenting, and who we surround our children with is so incredibly important and we strive to create the best environments possible for families to do this!
Through Ridgeland Kids whether it is through our engaging Sunday morning kids worship or through our various special events we seek for it to always be fun, invest in your child, and be a caring environment to meet your child where they are at.
Through our Little Lights Academy, we have been serving the community for 50+ years with high quality childcare and preschool education. We know that the environment that our children are in is so crucial in theses important formational years and we are grateful for the ability to serve our community in providing a place that loves, nurtures, and develops children from where they are in their unique journey.
"Loving our neighborhoods as Jesus does by being present, being love, and being all-in."
